Alyce feeling at home in Paris
“IT’S great to be back in Paris,” Alyce Brierley said.
She feels completely at home but guilty for leaving family.
“It feels the last few months in Australia were a dream and I never actually left Paris,” she said.
Whenever there are sirens, it is gutwrenching for the locals.
“I think we are all anticipating more attacks. It’s very surreal,” Ms Brierley said.
While getting groceries from the shopping centre downstairs, there was a bomb threat.
“It was a bit of a reality shock. I tried to remain calm. I guess this is our reality now,” she said.
The army, police and security personnel are everywhere, checking bags and monitoring everyone in the shops, markets, metro and everywhere.
“It feels very safe though,” she said.
